Scottish Thistle Wax Seal Necklace, even more beautiful in person, this silver thistle charm is the national flower of Scotland, the meaning "No One Provokes Me With Impunity". One thistle is said to have saved an entire Scottish army. The vintage wax seal more then likely sat forgotten in the back of a desk drawer until we acquired it while in London at the famed Portobello Road Markets. We've captured it's timeless symbolism in this necklace, made it modern by turning it into a beautiful silver charm, creating a heirloom piece worthy of generations to come.

The Thistle symbolizes strength, unity and friendship, perfect for gifting to a best friend, mom, a sister, even symbolic for men. We sell this thistle at a lovely shop in Edinburgh, Scotland (Us in picture#7) and love to visit her when our jewelry journey takes us abroad!


The Story Of The Thistle

A thousand years ago, during the Vikings invasion of Scotland, an advancing enemy warrior stepped on a thistle and cried out in pain inadvertently waking the sleeping Scotsmen. Scottish King Kenneth III was so grateful that he adopted the thistle as his nation's emblem.

We have a great blog post that walks you through How to Select the Perfect Necklace Chain

Keep in mind that most jewelry is delicate to some degree. Unfortunately, no matter what you do to protect it, metal will dull and tarnish over time. Contact with lotion, perfume, and daily perspiration will eventually take its toll on jewelry. Moisture and humidly make this happen even faster.

We have also found that if you live close to the ocean or in an area that is more humid, your jewelry may need extra care to keep it looking shiny and new. And, as convenient as it may be to store your jewelry in the bathroom, this too is a bad idea. Store your jewelry in airtight containers or a resealable plastic bag when not in use, this will protect your piece from humidity and prevent tarnishing and scratches when not in use.

A clever little trick is to place a piece of chalk or a silica packet, (you know the kind that comes with a new pair of shoes or purse?) in your jewelry box to collect humidity and delay tarnish. For all of these situations you'll find that a quick wipe with a polishing cloth will return it's luster and remove any tarnish.

You love your jewelry, we get it, but we always recommend removing it before working out or doing household chores that cause perspiration, this will quickly dull your jewelry and you'll find the back of your pendant will look as though it's collected a layer of grime.

The most frequent question we receive is how to remove this build up. We sell little polishing pads that are cellular foam with permanently bonded micro-abrasives that will quickly remove the build up. 

We believe in extraordinary customer service and want you to be happy with your purchase.
